Some causes of athletic Injuries:

Our muscles and bones can handle heavy loads and pressure for a lifetime if used the right way, this also means balance plays a major role. If our left and right side of our body are balanced then there are fewer chances for you to get an injury during match.

If our body is not balanced it can cause self-harming injuries like ankle twists, and falls, also when the pressure on our right knee is more than on the left knee, there are more chances of a balance injury. If you want to avoid self-made injuries our physiotherapist’s advice is to keep your skeletal system and muscles balanced. Our athletic therapy Edmonton can help you achieve your sports goal if you reach out to us.  

A direct hit cannot be prevented in many cases, a direct hit can only be cured. Runners tend to injure their knees more than any other sports people.
